Texas SIP: 30 TAC 117.560. Rescission; SIP effective 2000.12.26

Regulatory Text: 
TNRCC Chapter 117 – Control of Air Pollution from Nitrogen Compounds


§117.560.  Rescission.
As adopted by TNRCC May 25, 1994, effective June 23, 1994

(As approved by EPA September 1, 2000 (65 FR 53172) effective October 31, 2000)

     If, after reviewing the results of the Urban Airshed Model for a nonattainment area, the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (TNRCC) determines after conducting public hearings that the additional reductions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) in the nonattainment area would not contribute to attainment of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for ozone in that nonattainment area, then the TNRCC shall have the executive director submit such findings and results to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator for a determination under the 1990 Federal Clean Air Act Amendments §182(f).  If the EPA Administrator approves the TNRCC's finding, then the requirements of this chapter shall be reproposed in rulemaking to address the findings of the Administrator as to the applicable NOx requirements.
